Dr. Who/why /how do the time lords die

Actually, it is because if a timelord is killed while they are regenerating they are dead. The regeneration period lasts for a couple of hours to days before and after they regenerate. There is no period before if they were suddenly killed, as shown by the death of the 4th doctor, when he fell of a tower and regenerated instantly

Just ask! Many years of viewing and study, in the unlikely event I don`t know the answer chances are I will be able to find out very easily/quickly. Ask away! PLEASE NOTE: My expertise only extends to 'classic' Doctor Who (i.e. 1963-1989), I DO NOT answer questions about the 'new' series (2005-).


Absorbing knowledge on the series from as soon as I have been able to read from books and watching the videos even longer than that. An obsessive interest in a subject for 20 years tends to lead to a pretty extensive culmination of knowledge!
